TREMPEALEAU COUNTY -- The armed and dangerous suspect wanted from Eagle, Wisconsin is believed to have been spotted in western Wisconsin -- in Trempealeau County.

On Thursday evening, the Waukesha County Sheriff's Office was notified by Trempealeau County Sheriff’s Office that they believed Jonathan Pogreba broke into a cabin in their area.

The Waukesha County Sheriff’s Office was advised by Trempealeau County Sheriff’s Office that they received a report of a hunting cabin that appeared to have been broken into.

The cabin is located in the town of Preston, Trempealeau County, southeast of the city of Blair.

According to the Waukesha County Sheriff's Office, the caller, a neighbor to this property, reported that he talked to the owner of the cabin and was told that no one should be at the cabin.

The Trempealeau County Sheriff’s Office also spoke to the owner of the cabin and confirmed this information. The owner of the cabin is related to Jonathan Pogreba and does not live in Trempealeau County.

Police responded to this location and found that someone broke into the cabin and it appeared that they have since moved on.

Based on the evidence located in the cabin, the Waukesha County Sheriff’s Office believes the person that broke in was Jonathan Pogreba. There was a small amount of blood left at the cabin so Jonathan may be injured and a note was left that we believe came from Jonathan.

In the note, Jonathan stated that he took the plates off the white BMW that he was driving and would be traveling to the Boundary Waters in Minnesota where he would leave the car and move out on foot.

A warrant has been issued in Waukesha County for his arrest on charges of second-degree endangering safety, disorderly conduct and battery. A criminal complaint says the 43-year-old Pogreba pointed a gun at his wife and assaulted her.
